A “Site Plan”, sometimes referred to as a “Topo”, may be required in order to obtain a building permit for new home construction. A “Site Plan” begins with a field survey to establish the existing parcel lines and mapping of existing topography along with available utilities for the subject parcel. A “Site Plan” is then developed, showing the footprint of the proposed home, driveway, grading and utility connections.
A “Plot Plan” is a less detailed version of a site plan (no topography/elevations or utilities), that typically shows the parcel boundaries, footprint of the existing house and driveway along with the footprint of the proposed addition or additions with dimensions to adjacent property lines. A “Plot Plan” is typically required for smaller additions and detached garage/sheds.
